3 Web Development Resources that boosted my Confidence to land a Paid Client
These three resources helped me go from beginner, to confidently take on clients as a web developer.
- 1. Paid online course: Zero to Mastery
- 2. Free online resource: W3 Schools
- 3. Paid Book: Don’t Make me Think
Zero to Mastery
W3Schools has really quick reference to documentation. I still use it when I’m working on websites. I don’t try to remember everything, I just look it up when I need it. For example, if I want to add a shadow around an object or text, I can look it up and have the answer in a few seconds. They also have tutorials that can probably be useful to learn the fundamentals, but I did not do tutorials on there so I wouldn’t be able to give my opinion on them.
Don’t Make Me Think
Don’t Make Me Think taught me about Web Design fundamentals. The author talks about creating a good experience for the user and breaks down the component’s you need on your site and how you should best lay them out. If you have no experience designing a website, this is a good place to start.
The resources I’ve shared here are good for people new to development as well as those those with years of experience.
